KMC Wheels announced the expansion of its XD Powersports line of UTV wheels with the introduction of five new 15-inch styles with high offset for better steering, handling and more. One of the new models includes the XS235 Grenade, a 15×5 inch race-specific wheel with zero offset, which just won the King of the Hammers UTV race with driver Mitch Guthrie Jr. on February 9.
“These new additions to the powersports line will give UTV enthusiasts more options for customizing their passion both visually and in performance factors,” said Ryan Guidus, Powersports Marketing Manager at KMC Wheels. “With the lighter weight and higher offsets, these new wheels will give our customers new and exciting ways to make their UTVs race-ready.”
These new wheels include beadlock and non-beadlock models and come in a variety of colors including satin black, satin gray, satin bronze and machined steel. The XD Powersports UTV collection wheels have been tested with higher offsets, allowing for better steering and a more instant response to the steering wheel. There is no wandering at high speeds and a very smooth ride over rocks and bumps. Even after significant pre- running, there was a lack of abnormal wear on the front end.
- 15″ wheel gives the better clearance between the rotor and caliper to keep rocks and debris out
- Going with the 6″ wide wheel:
- less barrel for rocks/debris to catch at high speeds.
- makes the wheel lighter, but doesn’t affect the integrity of the wheel and allows for better clearance depending on how the vehicle is set up
The +38mm offset advantage
- Retained the OEM width and stance
- Retained closed/open trailer functionality
- Highly customizable
